Kuwait Fashion Week proved to be a full 360° spectrum of surreal and daring surprises. Saeed Qubaisi presented a collection of glamorous decadence. The gowns hugged the models. The delicate fabrics were opulent and the sheer magnitude of the dresses was impressive. Angelina Jolin, stylist to the A-Listers based in New York commented “these dresses were ideal for the likes of Céline Dion and Beyoncé.” The international crowd gasped in admiration when Haya Al-Bugayli quietly stepped on stage in her abaya and paraded the catwalk hand in hand with her gorgeous bride model.
Anfal Al-Saleh stole the hearts of the crowd. Her wedding gowns were cutting-edge, sublime and urban. The dresses nodded to town-hall city weddings in London and Milan; there was a sense or urbanism yet the gowns were timeless. Julette N White promoted their rising star from Tunisia Safi Rabah, an emerging jewel for evening gowns. The house was packed due to the overwhelming instagraming and twittering the night before. Celebrities such as the actress Elham Al-Fadeala, that I mistakenly took for a Parisian aristocrat, was dressed all in Chanel. We were also honored to have with us the owner of Jumeirah Hotels Kuwait, Khawla Moubarak Al-Hasawi.
